Better read the fine print on the Taylor life time warranty. I took one in that was like new with a pin hole leak and the St Augustine, Fl WM rep told me warranty only cover wear and tear/scuffing type damage. Still can't figure where the pin hole came from.

If I were buying fenders I woud buy black. Mine always seem to wind up black or close to it anyway, same for shorepower cords.

That's interesting, i have taken two old Taylor fenders with slow leaks to two different West stores with no receipt and had them replaced no questions asked. Is this latest "policy" something new? You might try a different west store or talk to the manager.

Do you know where the leak is? They can be patched with a tire patch or bicycle tube patch kit.

The reason I posted what I did about Taylor fenders and West Marine is because I have actually done that, returned defective ones for replacements.

It was a surprise to me but the store manager read from a new Taylor fender's tag with the clause that the failure had to be from normal wear and tear not a puncture. Maybe St Augustine West marine is the only store adhering to the companies replacement policy. The checkout clerk was ready to replace it till the manager stepped in to the conversation.

Our dock neighbour has/had Dockmate fenders and they were junk. Defective, and when replaced they were even more defective. The vessel is a beautiful 1964 American Marine 55' Motorsailor - teak hull - that he thought he was properly protecting from the dock. Not so. (There was no actual damage done though.)
